529-0042-00LStructure Elucidation by NMR4 credits2GM.‑O. Ebert
AbstractStructure Elucidation of Complex Organic Molecules by NMR
ObjectiveStructure elucidation of complex organic molecules (including peptides, oligosaccharides and oligonucleotides) by advanced 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. The emphasis of the course is on the selection of optimal strategies for the solution of a given problem, spectrum interpretation and possible artifacts. Solving and discussing practical case studies/problems demonstrating the individual methods and, in the last third of the course, the combined application of several methods form an important part of the course.
ContentStructure determination by multi-pulse and 2D NMR spectroscopy. Homonuclear and heteronuclear shift correlation through scalar coupling; one and two dimensional methods based on the nuclear Overhauser effect. Choosing the best strategy for a given problem, interpretation and artefacts.
Lecture notesScripts (in English) are distributed in the course

AbstractPractical introduction to important experimental methods in physical and analytical chemistry.
ObjectiveThe students have to carry out selected experiments in physical chemistry and evaluate measurement data.
They acquire a good knowledge about the most important practical techniques in analytical chemistry.
Laboratory reports have to be written to each experiment.
ContentPhysical chemistry part:
Short recapitulation of statistics and analysis of measurement data. Writing experimental reports with regard to publication of scientific works. Basic physical chemistry experiments (a maximum of six experiments form the following themes): 1. Phase diagrams (liquid-vapour and solid-liquid phase diagrams, cryoscopy); 2. electrochemistry and electronics; 3. quantum chemistry studies; 4. kinetics; 5. thermochemistry; 6. speed of sound in gases and liquids; 7. surface tension.

Analytical chemistry part:
1. Introduction to the concept of sampling, quantitative elemental analysis and trace analysis, atomic spectroscopic methods, comparative measurements with electrochemical methods; 2. Separation methods, their principles and optimisation: comparison of the different chromatographic methods, effect of the stationary and mobile phases, common errors/artefacts, liquid chromatography, gas chromatography (injection methods). 3. Spectroscopic methods in organic structure determination: recording of IR and UV/VIS spectra, recording technique in NMR

Mandatory exercises in spectroscopy in an accompanying tutorial 529-0289-00 "Instrumentalanalyse organischer Verbindungen" are an integral part of this course.
Lecture notesDescriptions for experiments available online.
